Oh ok.

Other than the hoardings being prepared (put up and painted), nothing much else has been happening here. Some of the barriers had been removed.

Gone very quiet here - don't think I've seen anyone on site this week.

Don't think anything will start in April now.

Waiting game!

JCB's etc on site today, probably to remove the piles of rubble left on site during the demolition phase.

I don't think anything is planned for that car park, but the 4 white buildings on the other side of the road have been knocked down for a new Unite Office and hotel.

Only Venture Way. Various businesses have moved into Ashed Lock Way (including my work).

Car park recently re-numbered.

No problem. Hope the future crane and ground breaking machine won't cause vibrations like the demo did!

No 100% but i think the car park is ear marked for the medical school.

Correct, shown at the end of the video, although looks like there will be space left

It's outrageous, without a doubt. But I think we might get something like that, for something in Smithfield perhaps. Surely we're at least asking?

Ground works are well under way at the HS2 rail college, the site is a lot bigger than the photos portray.

I have a good view of it from one side of my work building, but not sure if I would want to take photos from there (don't go in that side on my lunch break). Birds eye view.

Would be nice if Wilmott Dixon could put up a webcam like they have done for Donny.
